Subject: RE: What's a Strad, Amati etc fiddle?
Lable means it is a copy of a Strad originally made in 1620. Loads and tons of these copies out there....depends on where and when and by whom it was really made by. The sound has NO bearing on value, just the above. I have a Strad copy, machine made by Lyon and Healy in Chicago, US in the 1920's....moneytary value...NONE. Sentimental value....irreplaceable.
